BacKLane Cinema #6: 'Home' - a Merdeka Eve Special

Join us for the 6th and final edition (for now!) of BacKLane Cinema at the same location where it all started - in Lorong Bandar 13, Kuala Lumpur.

It will be a very special Merdeka Eve screening event!

BacKLane Cinema is a pop-up community cinema that hosts film screenings in the streets of downtown Kuala Lumpur as a way to activate the laneways of central KL and also to instill a community gathering where people can enjoy watching films together in a public space for FREE. Imagine the old-school wayang pacak style of watching films, but instead of on the grass, you'll be watching it in the urban outdoors and in the backalleys of the city! BacKLane Cinema is organized by REXKL and Filemmakers Anonymous with the generous support from Think City and Citi Foundation.

For this Merdeka Eve special, we have teamed up with Acumen Academy Malaysia and will be celebrating the theme of "Home". We'll be showing the 1982 film 'Kami', directed by Patrick Yeoh and starring the much beloved Malaysian icon - Sudirman. The event will open with an award-winning short film 'Eraser', directed by Mark See Teck Lee.

Join us for some traditional food, ice-cream potong, music and even a photobooth! Show your merdeka spirit and come wearing the colours of Jalur Gemilang (Malaysia's national flag).

The first 100 names to sign-up will receive a treat from us, as usual :)

7.00pm Doors and registration opens
8.00pm Show time!


The BacKLane Cinema team will be taking a short break after this edition - to regroup and plan for the future series of BacKLane Cinema. So hope to see you at this event!
